The movie “A Dangerous Method” describes the founding father of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud, his then “crown prince” Carl Jung, their famous female patient Sabina Spielrein and the relationship between the three. It is a highly interesting movie. The script writer Christopher Hampton has pulled the trick of condensing these very interesting times on the eve of the 1st World War, when so many fantastical and eccentric persons flowed through Vienna and the salons where Freud and his pupils hung out, into five distinct characters in the movie. They play out a fascinating drama between them, uncovering dark forces and strong desires in the human mind in the process.
